JNU FEE HIKE

Basic demand on fee hike met, calls for JNU VC's removal now not reasonable: HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal

"Over 80 per cent students have already registered for the winter semester. The students who want to study should not be disturbed. If our universities have to excel in global competition, we need to rise above these issues," he said.

  • The 25-year-old Ghosh, president of the JNU Students' Union (JNUSU), is arguably the most recognised student leader in the country at present.

    Educationists and marketing pundits concur that expressing dissent on campuses by students through protests is normal, and acceptable. However, some caution when protests stretch too long and send the functioning of an institute into a tailspin, it can potentially impact the reputation of the institute.

    Having pushed through a resolution formula with the agitating students and the varsity administration, the officials are confident that students would choose to attend classes rather than boycott them.

    . The registrar issued a statement on Monday which alleged JNUTA violated service contracts of teachers and it was the fundamental right of JNU students to attend classes and the teachers union’s action reflected “intention to disrupt normal functioning of the university”.

    The university administration will extend the deadline for the semester registration process again if needed, he said after the HRD Ministry met with a five-member team from the JNU administration, including JNU Vice Chancellor M Jagadesh Kumar.

    The Congress had appointed a four-member fact-finding committee to carry out a detailed inquiry into the violence at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU).

    Referring to the recent violence at the JNU campus, Adityanath said, "Leftist groups created an atmosphere of violence by resorting to lies, but Delhi Police has unearthed the conspiracy they had hatched to disrupt the examination process at JNU."

    Hours after violence broke out at the JNU campus on Sunday, teachers raised questions on the university's security and alleged that the administration was hand in glove with the attackers.

    A pall of terror and fear prevails in Delhi’s Jawaharlal Nehru University. It was not the same 'safe space', after about a 100-strong mob entered the campus, breaking and hitting everything that came their way. Students described that neither them, their teachers, cars, motorcycles and other property were spared.

    Shortly after Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar took over as VC of the JNU, in Jan 2016, he emphasised faculty and students should be known for their scientific and social contributions and it should not be in the news for the wrong reasons. Ironically, JNU has been in the news for the wrong reasons, thereafter.

    Terming the clash "unfortunate", ABVP state president alleged that the violence was the handiwork of Leftitst forces who want to destabilise the situation in the JNU. More than 35 students and faculty members were assaulted on Sunday evening after masked men armed with sticks and iron rods went on a rampage inside the campus of the institute.

    Amid outrage by students over a proposed fee hike, the HRD Ministry had intervened last month and formed a three-member committee to resolve the stand-off between the university and its administration.
